Bold Wenger: Arsenal now activating plans for $63.9 million new signing – Report
Arsene Wenger appears to be actively pursuing the signing of a new attacking midfielder to bolster his squad after this season comes to an end.
The Arsenal boss offloaded the likes of Serge Gnabry and Joel Campbell (on loan) last summer before managing to secure the addition of Lucas Perez to fill the void in his attacking options.
However, with the future of key star Alexis Sanchez still uncertain as he delays the decision to renew his contract, Arsenal may be forced into a search for a replacement.
As a result, WhoScored is now exclusively claiming that Wenger is set to approach Borussia Dortmund yet again over the possibility of signing Marco Reus.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Germany international for several years now and the speculation is likely to continue.
According to the report, Arsenal are preparing an offer in the region of $63.9 million (€60 million) for the signing of Reus if Sanchez does choose to say goodbye to the club this summer.
The arrival of the Dortmund star, who has been troubled by injuries for the past couple of seasons, would see him become the most expensive player in the club’s history.
